    Dynotherms Connected!

    Last week we learned about friendship and teamwork in the Enfield office by taking a break to watch the first couple episodes of Voltron Legendary Defender (can you believe some of us hadn't seen it?) and build the new LEGO Ideas set 21311 Voltron. One of the many wonderful things about this set is that each of the five lions comes with its own instructions booklet, allowing the four of us to each build a lion. I took on the blue lion, while Darryl did the yellow, Tim did the green, and Alyssa did the red. Tim finished first and had the honor of building the black lion – who is much bigger than the others, while Darryl got to do the sword and shield. Then, in the spirit of teamwork and coming together and other wholesome themes from the show, we assembled Voltron. It was kind of a big deal.

    The AWESOME Building Buddies Competition!

    Unfortunately it was due to a lack of resources to support the contest in Portuguese, sorry.

    The AWESOME Building Buddies Competition!

    Hi everyone, Sorry for the delay, as this is a contest hosted outside of our department I had to ask the contest manager. We would like to keep the 2 building systems separated for this competition but that they’re of course very welcome to submit both a DUPLO and a LEGO system model. Hope that makes sense I've asked the team and they are double checking with legal to find out exactly why! I'll ask the team and let you know!

  6. For June’s celebration breakfast on the AFOL Engagement Team, all team members were tasked with building the Creative Storybook Gift with Purchase and customizing it as we saw fit. This was a really fun experience, as at least on the US team, we don’t always have the same access to Gift with Purchase sets as other sets, and this was a really cute one, which is similar in concept to the next LEGO Ideas set. Here are some of the customizations we created: In the US, we faced a challenge in getting the set quickly. Luckily Darryl had the right contacts in LEGO Shop at Home, so a couple of our builds were Darryl themed. Alyssa found herself missing a bag of bricks - but was able to build Darryl "Danger Zone" Kelley riding into battle on his trusty swan sidekick while dual wielding his unsalted pretzel-chucks. In Tim's model, you see our esteemed colleague, dressed up as Sam Flynn, dribbling a basketball while holding a pretzel (with no salt, who does that?). He even has his own cheer squad! And of course, Darryl built his own Darryl themed model, complete with Scooby Doo. To those in the US, we wish you a fun a safe 4th of July!

    Celebration Breakfast - Minifig Photography!

    Yes, I know I just posted photos from a previous celebration breakfast, but we actually just had our celebration for May, where we got to play with the series 18 Minifigures, to show the celebrating 40 years of LEGO Minifigures! Each member of the team was given some of the Minifigures and told to practice their Minifigure photography skills. Most of us are amateur photographers at best...most of us. We still had a lot of fun. Here are the highlights. Photo by Ana Photo by Camilla Photo by Jan Photo by Sanne Photo by Maria Photo by Tormod Photo by Sara However, all of us were put to shame by Hasan, who is a talented photographer in his own right, and took the opportunity to show off his skills. And one fun extra one using different Minifigures: Have you taken photos with the series 18 Minifigures yet? We hope these have inspired you!

    Contest: Iconically Jurassic

    Hi @René Virsik, Unfortunately this is a legal requirement we have to include in all our contests, as operating such a contest would be illegal in those countries. There is little we can do to change that right now. However we do try to offer contest experiences as globally as we can. Hope that makes sense

    AE Celebration Breakfast

    Every month, the AFOL Engagement Team at The LEGO Group gathers for a celebration breakfast, during which we discuss major accomplishments for the prior month and engage in a building activity. April's building activity was to take 31068 LEGO Creator Modular Modern Home and make some simple custom changes to it. Keep in mind that while we work with super talented AFOLs everyday, we lack their talent, although everyone had fun building. Someone even added an important room to their modular (although the walls appear to be windows?). In the Enfield and Shanghai office, we naturally couldn't take part in the breakfast (it was set for 2 am EST which is a bit early for me at least), but we did share our models as well. Jacky in Shanghai also took part, building a version of his apartment! Looking forward to May's celebration breakfast building challenge!
